Spring Cleaning Tips for Aluminum Awnings
Aluminum awnings are great for businesses that use them. They give your business a boost in curb appeal, and they can shield your building from excess rainwater and sunlight. With spring around the bend, it’s time to start thinking about how to get your aluminum awning back into a clean and appealing condition. Here are some spring cleaning tips we have for businesses with aluminum awnings.
Weekly Cleaning Tips
A lot of businesses can benefit from a weekly washing of their awning, although the frequency of washing will depend slightly on your environment. Buildings that experience more mud and dirt, or that get exposed to soot from cars, will definitely need a weekly cleaning, though you may not have to clean as often under cleaner environmental conditions.
When cleaning your aluminum awning, start by rinsing it off with a hose. This helps loosen up any dirt so that it becomes easier to remove. If there’s really stubborn grime on your awning, a detergent may be needed for a more thorough cleaning, and this detergent should be added to some warm water.
Monthly Cleaning Tips
Every month, aluminum awnings will need to be cleaned more thoroughly as more dirt has time to accumulate. Instead of a traditional hose washing, you’ll want to use a power washer to get your awning cleaned up. The force from a power washer will help to remove the more stubborn messes that have piled onto your awning.
If you see any mildew or mold growing on your awning, you should use a mixture of warm water and vinegar. Vinegar should make up about one fourth of the solution, with the rest being water, and this solution is highly effective at dealing with stubborn messes. It’s also great because you won’t damage any nearby greenery around your property.
